About the Course

This course helps educators teach students the skills that will make them careful and thorough researchers.  Most students in our time are not critical consumers of information, and through this course educators can help students make meaning of the information they are exposed to, teach students how to identify tactics used in misinformation campaigns, evaluate sources, fact-check, and understand the differences and goals of different types of resources. This is paired with resources from the Stanford History Education Group. This class is most appropriate for K-12 grade educators.

This was a very interesting class to get some ideas on how to help students effectively research on the internet. The accompanying text is full of great resources that can be used in the classroom.
